signed up for a basic room, they upgraded me to a newly remodeled kitchenette. They were upgrading at least a couple of rooms. The A/C will freeze you if you let it. Coexistence Bistro was a very good restaurant. Staff was really good. One night I was in the pool at nine p.m. and was asked to leave, and I... More

This hotel is in the perfect location close to the beach, main plaza, and the malecon. The room was kept impeccably and the air conditioning is so nice! There is a pool in the center of the lobby/courtyard and a delicious restaurant attached called Coexist. The staff was amazing and I couldn't ask for a better stay.

Rooms are small studios and regular rooms. the pool area and restaurant are lovely open air , and air conditioned. The menu is extensive from pizza, salads to large platters. All of the food there...

The check in was excellent! At check in, the young man with glasses was very courteous and kind. He went over and beyond when we asked him about nice places to dine and the best beaches to visit. He even re-booked our bus tickets and offered to go to Wal-mart himself since we needed a waterproof cellphone case. Although we... More

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel this is not the place for you. This is a cozy and quaint hotel in the middle of the down town Puerto Vallarta. Location is just a block off the malecon. Great food north or south. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Rooms looked same as pics online. I can say the... More

My honey and I had our first wedding anniversary in PV and I chose this hotel because it was closer to the malecon. I have never stayed here but I will be returning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The first night, the a/c went out and it was very hot. The front desk clerk was on it as... More

Perfectly well located for the traveller who want to be in the middle fo everything. Shops, beach, restaurants, all is within a walking distance. The room is rather small, but it is OK for a short stay. Well equiped bathroom with all the amenities you need. Friendly staff, check-in and check-out was quick and smooth. It has a clean pool...
